This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of south central
Indiana and Central Kentucky.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

An approaching cold front will bring chances of scattered storms 
this afternoon mainly north of I64 with locally gusty winds being the
main threat. 


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

Isolated to widely scattered storms are forecast Friday afternoon 
through Tuesday. The best coverage appears to be on Friday morning and
then again on Sunday as a couple of frontal boundaries approach the 
region and provide focus for storm development. The main threats with
these storms will be brief heavy rainfall and gusty winds.

National Weather Service Louisville KY
328 AM EDT Thu May 23 2019

.Short Term...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 300 AM EDT Thu May 23 2019

Persistent high pressure remains over the Gulf Coast states while a 
deep, vertically stacked low that currently resides over Lake 
Superior will march eastward to Maine over the next 24 hours. This 
low will put a dent in the high pressure influence over the Ohio 
Valley allowing for scattered showers and storm chances throughout 
the short term. 

A line of showers and storms extending from MI to OK will weaken as 
it approaches southern Indiana and central Kentucky. Expect some 
showers to move through the area this morning, mainly in our 
southern Indiana counties and those northern KY counties along the 
Ohio River.  

The cold front to our west will begin to pivot from a SW-NE line to 
a NW-SE orientation as it rides over top the ridge. Models are good 
agreement with placing this boundary across southern IL/IN/OH and 
northern KY. Interesting dynamics take place during this period as 
an elongated jet max over the Great Lakes induces ageostrophic 
forcing, evident from the isentropic upglide on the 305K potential 
temperature surface. This forcing is coincident with ample moisture 
with precipitable water reaching the 90 percent daily max for BNA. 
Moisture and lift combined with remnant outflow boundaries and 
diurnal instability should realize scattered showers and chance of 
thunderstorms this afternoon into early evening, mainly north of 
I64. SPC's latest convective outlook places much of our forecast 
area within a marginal risk today as SBCAPE values are well over 
3000 J/kg, though kinematics aren't all that impressive (0-6km Bulk 
Shear values range from 25 to 30kts). Expect main threats with any 
potential storms to be locally gusty winds, though small hail is 
also possible. Southwest winds gusting into the 20mph range will 
help keep temperatures well above climo with max temps from the mid 
to upper 80s and even 90 in southern KY.

Convection will wane with the loss of diurnal heating, but CAMs 
agree that scattered light showers will continue across northern KY 
and southern Indiana through early Friday morning. Min temperatures 
Friday morning will be mild in the mid to upper 60s.

&&

.Long Term...(Friday through Wednesday)
Issued at 325 AM EDT Thu May 23 2019

Any lingering early Friday morning shower activity should go away as 
an upper ridge builds across the region. Afternoon redevelopment 
should be limited to north and northeast of our region, central 
Indiana into southwest Ohio, along the periphery of that upper 
ridge. After the morning clouds give way, we should see a hot start 
to the Memorial Day weekend. The situation should be similar 
Saturday, but disturbances riding up the ridge should push it south 
and allow our area to be in that periphery for storm development 
Sunday and Memorial Day. 

A stronger trough moving into the Central Plains Tuesday should 
briefly reinvigorate the ridge over us, perhaps providing a drier 
warmer day. This pattern could hold into Wednesday, but given 
depiction by CMC/GEFS/GFS of a weaker ridge will allow higher pops 
for that day.

&&

.Aviation...(06Z TAF Issuance)
Updated at 145 AM EDT Thu May 23 2019

VFR conditions are expected throughout much of TAF period. A line of 
convection to our west will weaken as it approaches the forecast 
area this morning. LVX vertical wind profile shows borderline speed 
LLWS at SDF and HNB but most of the energy is to our north. Any 
shear conditions that do exist should diminish by mid to late 
morning with boundary layer mixing. Expect southwest winds sustained 
10-15kt with gusts into the low 20kt range by late morning and 
through the afternoon. A frontal boundary will reside just to our 
north allowing diurnal instability to flare up possible showers and 
thunderstorms, mostly at HNB, SDF, and LEX until sunset. Short range 
models suggest that scattered showers could continue into early 
Friday morning, especially at HNB and SDF.
